FDM teams at the Cumbrian Challenge

RESULTS from the Cumbrian Challenge 2017

These are the very impressive and determined men and women who took part alongside our remarkable beneficiaries and all deserve equal applause for braving the conditions.

Howling winds and driving rain did not deter more than 500 walkers from taking on the Cumbrian Challenge, making it to ‘Hel'(vellyn) and back with their teams and raising well over £100,000 (and counting) to support wounded veterans back into independence.

The 130 teams set off at  07:30 for the 29km ‘Tougher’ route, 08:00 for the 23km ‘Tough’ route and 08:30 for the ‘Peak’ route.

Due to the conditions, and under the watchful eye of the marshalling team, a number of teams made a sensible personal decision to switch to the Tough route at the top of Helvellyn and some headed down on more direct routes which should be applauded as they were looking after team members.

Congratulations to the following prize winners and thank you to every team that took part…
